University-run accommodation

Independent living close to campus
Share

The University manages several residences where you can enjoy the freedom of affordable self-catered accommodation close to everything you need.

There are five University-run housing options around the main campus: Abercrombie, Darlington House, Selle House, the Arundel St Terraces and the Queen Mary Building.

You can apply for these new developments (and all University-run housing) all year round, but be aware – most places are full to capacity well before the start of the academic year.
